A Hamish Henderson Night: Ballad of the Banffies takes place at the next Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow.
The concert is on Sunday 22nd January at 8pm in the Strathclyde Suite of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall - book tickets here.
Twenty years on from the landmark Greentrax tribute album A’ The Bairns O Adam, honouring the late great singer, songwriter, poet, folklorist and activist Hamish Henderson, a line-up of top Scots singers and musicians reprise their roles on 2021’s follow-up collection Ballad of the Banffies.
Malinky’s Fiona Hunter, Deaf Shepherd’s John Morran and rising star Cameron Dixon perform fresh settings of well-kent Henderson songs like Banks of Sicily and The Speakin Heart alongside little-known treasures, interwoven with readings of Henderson’s poetry by the producer of the two albums, renowned Scots scholar Dr Fred Freeman.
Instrumental accompaniment and interludes come from the equally crack team of Marc Duff (whistles), Frank MacLaughlin (guitar), Euan MacLaughlin (fiddle/banjo), Richard Werner (percussion) and Angus Lyon (accordion/keyboards).

Greentrax forward-planning of new releases includes a Davy Steele compilation; a collection of Dundee Songs, being released as a companion to Andrew Crummy’s latest tapestry; and a third album from Prestonpans’ man Alex Hodgson.
Postal strikes are taking place in November which may cause mail order delays - we’re afraid these are outwith the control of Greentrax.
Ian Green’s Pick Of The Month is Brian McNeill’s No Silence - the cracking album that marked Brian’s ‘musical half century’ and an excellent collection, mainly of Brian’s own songs. Available at the sale price of £11.00 throughout November. See all available Brian McNeill albums on Greentrax listed in our Solo Singers & Songwriters section.
